Carter played for a Rest of the World XI against England in the 2018 Soccer Aid match at Old Trafford on Sunday (Monday NZ time) and proved his wand of a left foot can still produce magic.

Robbie Keane, Juan Sebastian Veron and Clarence Seedorf scored for the World side, but Michael Owen was able to equalise for England and force the shootout, when "Supergirl" actor David Harewood saved two penalties to allow England to win 4-3.

"Now that I've retired I play a lot more and I am trying to get into it and I'm just going to see where it goes, nothing tried nothing done", Bolt added.

The game was between England and Bolt's team made up of players from all over the world called the "World XI". What a night it was for Blake.

"Football is something that's always been a passion, that I always played over time with my friends at school, but because it was so unsafe to tackle, all my coaches did not allow me to play football", the 31-year-old said on Thursday after training with the likes of former Manchester City player Yaya Toure and Arsenal and France star Robert Pires.

Murs captained the England side, and created the opening goal in sublime fashion.

You've probably heard of Usain Bolt - he's the fastest man on the planet!

'I got to play against some seriously good footballers and scored the first penalty for the World XI, despite being robbed of my first goal.

In regular time England took the lead through former national striker Darren Bent and freestyle footballer Jeremy Lynch doubled their lead soon after.

Mo Farah, on the other hand, actually out-sprinted Bolt in the first-half, hitting 32 kph compared to the 100m runner's 31.6kph.
